My name is Joseph Edwards. I'm a 20 year old saxophone player attending the University of Maryland. First let me say I hope that this message doesn't bother you. I just wanted to write inviting you to listen to my newest album , "The People's Gathering." It's a collection of all instrumental, hymns and original songs.
Sound samples are available on my page or on my website (je-music.com). I'd love to hear any feedback on the album...
Here's a couple reviews I've gotten so far...
-"It has been truly refreshing to listen to this young man! From the sounds that attract the older generations, with a modern day twist (Wade In the Water; Down By The Riverside), to the more contemporary tones "Nana's Song" and "Just Wanna Praise You", Joseph Edwards has really blended together something special. This is simply a "must add" to your collection! Believe me, you will not regret this one!" --Michael Stevens (cdbaby)
-"This CD is wonderful. I got a pre-release from the artist a few weeks back. I listen to it everyday! I really like Nana's Song. Overall, it's a wonderful collection of songs...some are familiar hymns (like Blessed Assurance) and others are originals. You've gotta add this one to your collection"--Rebecca Porter (cdbaby)
Also, if you'd like to buy the album, it's available on iTunes and amazon.com (search "The Peoples Gathering").
Once again, I hope this message doesn't bother you. Just trying to branch out as best I can...

The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
The great composer and bandleader was distraught over the 1967 death of Billy Strayhorn, his songwriting and arranging partner of 28 years. But Ellington took Strayhorn's passing as an impetus, born of necessity, to increase his own productivity. Here are five examples.
At the Village Vanguard, one flight down from the hubbub of New York City, in a tight space packed with people, we're about to embark on a musical odyssey by sea. Our captain is saxophonist Chris Potter, who's launching his Odyssey-inspired album The Sirens.
Divine: The Jazz Albums, 1954-1958 packs four CDs with Vaughan's music, recorded live or in the studio with bands big and small. Two live albums from Chicago nightclubs are standouts, partly when a performance threatens to slide off the rails.
